Sturgeon fishing in Portland Oregon during the winter makes for some great fishing!
We sturgeon fish on the Willamette River right in down town Portland, Oregon.
We fish from a covered and heated boat.
Sturgeon come up the Willamette River because it runs a bit warmer than the Columbia River.
We fish with Light tackle, making it a great battle with a monster fish. Why stay home and watch fishing shows on TV? when You could be catching winter Sturgeon with Marvin’s Guide Service?
call Marvin and ask about winter rates January and February fishing trips only!
Today i had 4 people on the Columbia river sturgeon fishing.3 Of these people drove all the way from Utah,The other man came from Estacada.
We met at the Columbia river boat ramp at 6:30 am. We headed down the columbia up into the Willamette river.
Sturgeon AS of Jan. 1, 2009, the new way of measuring sturgeon to keep will take effect statewide.
Under the new rules, sturgeon will be measured from the tip of the nose to the fork in the tail (rather than the tip of the tail).
The resulting allowed retention measurements are slightly shorter than the old method. As a result, the 2009 slot measurement for sturgeon caught in the Columbia River downstream of The Dalles Dam to the Wauna Power lines, including tributaries, will be 38 to 54 inches FORK LENGTH. Upstream of The Dalles Dam to the Oregon/Washington border, the fork length for sturgeon retention will be 43 to 54 inches beginning on Jan. 1. Below the Wauna power lines, the fork length will likely change to 41-54 inches after April 2009, although those rules have not yet been adopted (see emergency rule changes for exact dates as the season approaches for sturgeon fishing below the Wauna power lines). Remember, all of these figures are simple conversions of the old method of measuring sturgeon. It does not mean you can keep smaller fish, only that the method of measuring “keepers” has changed. So, from Jan. 1 on,
Good luck on the columbia river should be a gteat year.
Look for lot of action with the shad come in on the river.
What you need to know to catch Columbia River Sturgeon.
I like to use a ugly stick rod. With a pen gti 320 with 100 pound tuff line.
I use a slider for my weight the to my hook witch is a size 10.
I use 130 pound leader. I like my leader to be about 4 foot long.
Walleye season on the Columbia River IN portland Oregon is practically year around.
These Walleye range 5 to 15 pounds and just may be one of the hardest fish to find.
They are aggressive elusive and sly, making them an incredible catch.
Hi my name Is Marvin. Welcome to my site I am a full time fishing guide here in Northwest Oregon.
I have been a fishing fool all my life. I have been fishing all over Oregon. I started fishing for salmon, steelhead, On the John day river with my dad.
The weather and the water is warming up. The fish are here!!!!!! The salmon are biting so are the sturgeon!
And I am always fishing for STURGEON, STEELHEAD and WALLEYE….
whats your preference?

Hope to see you soon.
Salmon fishing on the columbia has been good. Salmon fishing will close on the 22 of the month.
Sturgeon fishing on the Willamette River has been good.
The Columbia river is startin to warm up so I expect the Sturgeon to be up by the dam soon.
Shad will be in soon so star looking or them in the lower part of the River.
Today we had 4 clients on my boat.We were fishing on the Columbia river right below the 205 bridge.
Today I decided to anchor instead of trolling,Which was very smart but it was rainy and cold on the Columbia river.
